“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

CHANGING THE GLOBE BY GEORGE






















"How many Whites does it take to change a change a light globe?" George 
Grainger  Aldridge asked when I told him I'd miss lunch with him, Valmai
Hankel and Philip Satchell on account of braining myself and falling off the 
friggin steps ... "Stick to my patented light red, Whitey!" was his good advice.
